If you should ever get a rhinoceros for a pet, you're in for a surprise. It won't chase a ball. Or a stick. Or a frisbee. In fact, according to the experts, a rhinoceros does only two things: pop balloons and poke holes in kites.
But don't be discouraged. As you'll discover in Jon Agee's hilarious picture book, rhinoceroses can do more--so much more--than that! (Image and summary taken from goodreads.com)
My Review: According to the rhinoceros expert, pet rhinos are only supposed to do two things: pop balloons and poke holes in kites. Unfortunately, our protagonist's pet doesn't even do that! He was walking his pet rhino home, dejectedly, when they spy two robbers escaping in a hot air balloon and a big kite. Can his rhinoceros rise to the occasion?
This book made me giggle. It also became a swift favorite of my two year old - not only does it have awesome rhinoceros pictures, but what a rhinoceros! If you're looking for a great book to read with your toddler, this is definitely one to check out!
My Rating: Four stars
